The kids had a blast playing each others' Cardboard Arcade Games! They are so clever and creative! Our Remote Learners shared photos/videos of their games. We will play these games for a short period next Thursday.
Well, each group did a marvelous job finishing up for the year. Group 1 finished Level 2 and Group 2 almost finished Level 3. I've only had one class in seven years get to the end of Level 3. So these kids should be proud of their accomplishment!
We played "Backyard Brawl" which is an evaluative thinking game. The students choose a character from one of the books we've read in GR4 or GR5. Each character comes with 2 Super Powers and 1 Weakness. They are randomly assigned to debate who will win given the Powers/Weaknesses they have. A third student acts as Judge for the "Brawl". We got about halfway through today and will pick up next week. They did well!
If your child has a Hands On Equations kit at home, you may drop it off at school anytime between now and May 26th. Kits with more than one missing piece will need to be replaced at a cost of $5 per kit.
Until Next Time,
